UnGreen Field Radio

April 26, 2021

Sound Performance Program by Young Artists / MIT ACT

The notion of the “greenness” and invisible properties of “green” was explored by using wave scanners, field recordings, sensing technologies and other “techno-scientific” tools allowing us to receive “nature radio” signals, reveal patterns of urban environments, and make audible the invisible activities in nature – plants, soil, trees, swamps, bacteria, or underwater.
